Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a cheap DJ?

To find a cheap or affordable DJ for your party or wedding, search for local DJs near you and ask for free cost estimates from several of them. While some DJ profiles may provide an automatically generated starting cost, it’s important to contact the DJ to get an idea of how much your particular request will cost. This also gives you the opportunity to ask them other important questions and make sure you are a good fit.

How do you book a DJ for a party?

To book a party DJ, start by comparing local pros in your area. Check out their ratings and reviews to find out: 

  • Are they professional?
  • Do they show up on time to set up for the party?
  • Do they know how to feel the energy in the room and adjust the music accordingly?
  • Are they friendly to guests and take song requests?
  • Do they specialize in the genres you want (pop, Top 40, hip-hop, etc.)?
  • Do they have experience playing at your type of event (weddings, birthday parties, etc.)?

Whenever possible, watch videos of their performances. 

Your last step is to contact three to five different DJs near you to ask them questions and get price quotes.

How much is a DJ?

When you hire a local DJ, expect to pay roughly between $300 and $800. But be aware that the actual price will vary based on several factors, including the length of the DJ’s set and how much of a presence they need to be. Larger venues can drive up the cost, as this requires more equipment, soundchecking and setup. Adding extras like confetti, fog, light shows and black lights also adds to the cost. 

Get cost estimates from the best DJs near you to find out how much you should expect to spend for your event.

Read our cost guide, “How much does a DJ cost?

How much are wedding DJs?

Hiring a DJ typically costs anywhere from $300 to $1,200. It all depends on how long they’ll be working at your wedding and other various factors. The cost to hire a wedding DJ is usually higher than the cost to hire a DJ to play at a birthday party or similar event. 

To find out exactly how much your wedding DJ will cost, ask for a cost estimate from several professionals in your area.

How do you find wedding DJs?

Use Thumbtack to find wedding DJs in your area. Here, you can quickly see which local DJs have the highest ratings and best reviews. You can also see how many times each DJ has been hired, whether they’re responsive and if they’re in high demand.

Why do DJs ask how many guests are at the wedding?

It’s helpful to let your DJ know how many guests will be attending the wedding so they can ensure they have the right sound system and equipment. They may also ask more questions about your guests so they can ensure they have music that caters to the crowd. 

What questions should you ask wedding DJs?

To ensure you hire the best DJ for your wedding, ask these questions:

  • Are you available on my wedding date?
  • How much do you charge, and how do you set your prices?
  • What’s included in your rate (e.g., set up, clean up, etc.)?
  • How many weddings have you played at?
  • Do you have any references I can contact?
  • What kind of music do you specialize in?
  • Do you provide your own equipment, sound system, speakers, etc.?
  • Do you provide any other services (e.g., photo booth, lighting, etc.)?
  • Can guests request songs?
  • Will you accept a “Do Not Play” list?
  • How early would you arrive at the venue to set up?
  • Do you take breaks throughout the event? If so, how many and for how long?

He set up a DJ and MC for my store event with Vivica Fox. Both DJ Jay Tre and MC Phoenix did outstanding job. Both DJ and MC showed up early and they were very prepared and professional. I will definitely recommend 927 Music to my friends and will call him up again for my next event.

DJ Jason was incredible :) he made me very happy and I appreciated his excitement. He made the crowd bounce and "jam" ;). I respect what he does, and he's a great example, especially since it was a teenage party lol. His lights, hype music type, and style was amazing. Dj Jason YOU ROCK!!

I had a schedule event this morning with this DJ for clients that struggle with mental health and substance abuse issues and this DJ was a No Call No Show. This is very unprofessional and distasteful. I would not hire him because you just never know if he is going to arrive or ditch you the day of your event. This was for a great cause in which we both agreed upon the rate $250 and the time in advance. Thumbtack is this a scam? #notdependable #nocallnoshow

Professional, easy to contact, was on time, super friendly. Larry Green was the amazing DJ for our Middle School winter formal dance and kept the energy level up and kids on the dance floor ALL evening. Played great variety of age appropriate music of all genres, brought lights along with an incredible sound system that was just the right volume. Received many compliments on his services from both adults and kids. Will definitely hire him again and highly recommend DJ Larry Green to DJ your next event if you want stress free party planning. He is like having insurance that your event will be fun and energized for all who attend!!!

Kent was excellent. He made everything easy for our event. I will most definitely be using for all of our future events. If you need a DJ, he's your guy!

DJ Sirtified did an amazing job at keeping the flow of the music going. He was great at feeling the crowd to tell if the song needed to be change or to play it longer. Would definitely hire again!

DJ LK was amazing, he took time and care to meet with us beforehand regarding our daughter's "Sweet 16" Birthday Party off the Marietta Square. The music, lights, fog, announcements and videos were on point for our 80s/90s theme party. DJ LK worked well with the two performers at our venue and dance floor stayed packed all night. We highly recommend LK Production for your upcoming event and would certainly book services again.

We had the pleasure of letting Ernie be our DJ for the NYE party and we couldn't be happier with his professionalism and very accommodating manner. We look forward working with you again Ernie and many many thanks from behalf of the Romanian community of Atlanta.

Kevin was great to work with, adapted to our "over 55" crowd's Christmas preferences, was on time and ready to go with set up, and at a very reasonable price. We could not have asked for better atmosphere and music - everybody danced and said it was our best party ever. Will definitely engage DJ LK's services again.
